The best and only book on React.js I'd recommend to anyone at this stage. Through this book, I learned more about Flux in one afternoon than I ever did on my own by reading documentation and following tutorials. I also got introduced to Webpack, a fantastic JS module bundler that's light years ahead of anything else on the market. I cannot sing enough praises about this wonderful book!

Watch out Angular.js, here comes the future of frontend development!

I set a goal to start being productive with React & its ecosystem throughout a week. As the goal was set I had to find out what will be the best approach to achieve it. Trying to comprehend all these Fluxes, Reduxes & Immutable. JS through a course of a couple of days seemed impossible to me. Since I'm usually a book-type of guy, at first I've decided to read a book ... and then BOOM ... i'm a seasoned React pro.

To make a long story short, that didn't happen. This book can definitely he

A solid introduction to React. Uses a stub project to simplify the use of webpack (good move!). Overall the explanation is clear and follows a logical progression. Some of the Flux- and Alt-specific descriptions are unclear, eg motivation and mechanism of connect. A solid 3 stars, this conservative rating does not change the fact this is the best book on React I've come across. As the author is actively developing it I suspect this will be a 4-star book very soon.

Good guide to getting started with webpack, react and babel. I personally don't do too good with step by step guides. Learning through trial and error could probably have been a better way (using the book to shorten the feedback loop). Could be a great resource for those that like tutorials on how to get started.

Great book about the React ecosystem. It leaves you with very few questions throughout the book while doing the example projects.

Solid foundation on Webpack and state management libraries.

I highly recommend it as a starting resource about React.
